Following the release of Do What Thou Wilt., Ab-Soul gifts fans with the aplus-directed music video for “RAW (backwards).”

The high-energy visual finds Soulo and a band performing before an amped up crowd. The clip caters to the title of his album, which the TDE rapper broke down for HYPEBEAST in a recent interview.

“That is a famous quote from Mr. Crowley,” he shared. “To me, it translates to free will. Not necessarily ‘do what you wanna do’—‘cause that’s kinda chaotic—but do what you will to do. Will being stronger than a want. Something that’s supported by love and passion. That’s what that quote means to me, and you know I’m a man of quotes. That’s just one of those that resonated with me the most.”

If you’ve yet to hear the project, you can do so here.
